I enjoyed sitting in the lessons, and was happy to miss English, but I got an E in further maths. The teacher was called Mr Foley and I suspect he was an alcoholic.

We'd all sit there blank faced, absent a clue. He completely failed to teach us. And then he'd go to the pub. However, last year I had a job working for a dodg
